A pedestrian was struck by a vehicle on Water Street Friday morning, according to Tisbury Police Lt. Bill Brigham. Oak Bluffs Fire and EMS Chief Nelson Wirtz said one person was taken to Martha’s Vineyard Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. At least two Tisbury Police officers were on the scene at 10 am, ostensibly interviewing witnesses. Lt. Brigham later said a motorist was issued a citation for a crosswalk violation. 


  1. They may have been “non life threatening injuries”, but we know this 72 year old. woman. She was subsequently flown to MGH. Her upper tibia was shattered in several pieces which surgeons removed and no replaced with a metal plate and screws. She’ll be there a few more days and then on to time in rehab.
    This was not a little bumper tap. Drivers need to slow down and watch the road.
